Hopefully, the idea of pretending the disc is heavy will help.

Also, I attached a photo below. I understand exactly what you mean about crushing the can, although I do need drink more canned beer to replenish practice supplies. The other part of your post talks about weight still being to far back when i start swinging forward. In the picture, my entire body with the exception of the throwing arm should be more towards the target before I swing correct?

Thanks again.
Not necessarily body more towards the target, but de-weighted off your rear foot - rear heel up. Your weight leaving the rear foot should lead the disc moving forward.
